How to communicate and give powerful business presentations in English – for non-native-English speakers.
As you exchange information with people inside and outside your organization, you use a variety of formal and informal forms of communication. It is because of the human race‘s ability to express themselves, the ability to share the most complex ideas, theories and concepts, that we, as a species, have come so far. Language is the code we use to communicate – it organizes and classifies reality. Yet language can be both an enhancement and an obstacle to communication. Globalization and the Internet has brought about its own challenges to business people needing to communicate – most of all, how to find a set of shared codes to use to communicate. In many companies around the world, the English language – or coded variations of it – has manifested itself within organizations as the common denominator language. Along with business-speak, jargon and slang, we have come to expect that others will understand us, if we only speak English.
In this workshop we will be discussing how your business presentations are a means to communicate in business, in English language, even if this is not the native language of either the speaker or of the listener.
